    Change directory to where you have downloaded the tar.gz file to;

    Installing Adobe AIR
    Hi has anyone been able to install AIR to BackTrack 3?

    get.adobe.com/air
    Download now / save to disk

    Change directory to where you have downloaded the BIN file to;
    cd /root

    chmod 755 AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

    ./AdobeAIRInstaller.bin

    Error loading the runtime (libnss3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

    Can anyone tell me why its giving this error, am I installing this correctly?

    Considering that the OP did post in the bt4 beta how to section and did not mention othewise one would have to assume that the OP is using bt 4
    So basically you were of no real help. And imho a stupid post at that.

    OP you should look at the error you received. It seems as though it may be telling you something. My guess is that you are missing libnss2.so I would check that first adding as needed.

    @ war10ck216 - I am in the process of upgrading to BT4 atm but it seems abit buggy still at beta release - still would be good to get AIR running on BT3.

    @ archangel.amael - Thanks but I tried to search on gogle for the file "libnss2.so" this forum post came up first does anyone know where I can get this file from or what exactly it is?

    Thanks for the let will let you know if it works on BT4.

    i cant really help you out on this problem but search for libnss3 and libnss3-devel. see if it works if not well trial and error i guess.

    if you did upgrade to backtrack4 and still getting the error then just install libnss3 by:
    "apt-get install libnss3 libnss3-dev"
    should work out for you

    Are you trying to get the OP to switch to bt4 for some specific reason or are you not reading? Either way it's not much help.
    The OP's error stated
    Code:
    Error loading the runtime (libnss3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
    Then you tell him to search for libnss3 or a dev library??
    Come one now!

    @ OP BT3 ships with firefox 2.0.0.10 and flash plugin working and installed into /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.10/plugins. As soon as you upgrade it then you can have problems and lose the plugins. The solution is to move the .so into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

    This is a fault in slax which symlinks /usr/libfirefox-$LATEST_VERSION with /usr/lib/firefox and all the plugins installed get lost as soon as the browser is updated.

    If you no longer have the library in the above directories then, you can copy it over from a live cd.

    Post back if you need more help.

    im having a problem installing the flash player. i get all the way to where it asks what directory to install to. i used /usr/lib/mozilla and ive tried /usr/lib/firefox. but it keeps telling me the directory doesnt exist. I am using a flash drive with persistent changes.

    Nevermind!! I think I figured it out. I think it worked when I used /usr/lib/firefox-x.x.x (the X's being the version number.

    Instead of using the installer why not just manually install it like archangel.amael mentioned.
    Code:
    # tar xzf install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz && cd install_flash_player_10_linux
    # install -m 0755 libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
    I've never had a problem with the plugin disappearing after subsequent upgrades to firefox. I always use a slackbuild to install software as it is easier to manage.

    Since you said you're using BT3, the binary file won't install on platforms that don't support the rpm or deb format. At best you'd have to download their SDK and hack a working solution. The easiest way to get Adobe Air on the system is to upgrade to BT4 as it is Ubuntu based.

    The problem with firefox and BT is that firefox defaults to being installed into /opt on a normal installation, so that multiple users can access and have their settings saved in a "home" type directory. However with BT being setup for one user "root" this can sometimes present a problem.
    I covered this topic for bt4 yesterday here in post 15.
    The same applies to bt3
